I was inspired to create wedding kanzashi, after finding out about the Martha Stewart DIY Wedding Crafts contest (running until September 1, if you want to enter!).  There isn't a monetary prize or anything like that, I think you just get featured on her site/show.  Anyways, it's a good excuse to make more kanzashi  Wink

I used the old saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" as inspiration. 






Thanks for looking!  Smiley

This is absolutely stunning. This is definitely a potential project when I get married. Gunna make as much as possible instead of buying Wink

If I ever get there. *wishful thinking*

Aw thank you!  I wish I had been into making kanzashi back when I was getting married, it would definitely be so meaningful to craft your own bridal accessories.  And I'm sure you'll get there  Cheesy

So very beautiful! I'm sure you'll blow them away with this one. I think it's a great accessory for weddings, completely embodies the beauty and innocence of it all.

Plus the fact that it's handmade is amazing! I, too, want to do a lot of handmade things for my wedding, but I don't think I could pull this off. I'd go ahead and spend the money for it though. Totally worth it.

Good luck.

Don't be scared!  Wink  It takes some practice, but it's always fun.  My first attempts were terrible!  Roll Eyes  As for fabric, I used a mix of duchess satin and silk dupioni for this piece.  Usually I use Japanese fabrics (chirimen, or Japanese cotton prints, etc) or silk dupioni. 

As for the contest, they won't announce until beginning of next month  Undecided  But I think when it closed, there were like 4,000 entries!!

So beautiful and feminine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you ♥ I hope we should all feel beautiful and feminine on our wedding day Smiley

Do you use something to make the petals stick when you make them?
I saw somewhere they use rice glue or something ...?

Traditional method is to use rice glue, which works best on light weight fabrics.  If you use heavier fabrics, you'll have to use a more industrial glue, like fabric glue (or some people use a glue gun, but I have a personal aversion to glue guns  Tongue)
